October 2022 Newsletter


We hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving weekend and had an opportunity to reflect on all we have been blessed with. Our thoughts are filled with gratitude for you. As a faithful donor, you are the reason we can show God’s redeeming love to vulnerable women in Calgary. 

Each day, NSM receives calls from women escaping danger, desperate for safe refuge and support in coping with trauma that renders them hopeless. Because of you, every call is answered. While we do not have the capacity in our housing and day program for everyone who calls, we continue to grow and support women in several additional ways. With your kind support, we have grown from supporting an average of 17 women a month to 75; we anticipate this number to increase greater still as the colder months are upon us. 

We hope you can join us at our upcoming Gala Fundraiser ‘Her Next Chapter,’ on November 5th at the new Atco Park Blue Flame Kitchen here in Calgary. 

We're looking forward to celebrating with you, and acknowledging all the work God has done to care for this ministry. With your support, the women in our programs will know there is a caring community that loves her. Read full letter.

We had a blast riding for refuge with all of you who made it out last Saturday! Ride for Refuge is a community favourite and we are so glad to have been able to spend the day by the river with so many of the NSM friends and family. If you weren't able to make it out, there is still time to get involved and donate towards our housing initiative. We are happy to share that so far we've raised $22,508 of our $30,000 goal! But it's not over yet, our Ride for Refuge team will be accepting donations until the end of October!

The City of Calgary is also home to Métis Nation of Alberta, Region III.
